Of course, it could still be KA. BD doesn't have to follow that plot line- there are so many stories that it could, of course, be based on a different one.

Exactly, and there are so many other stories now that are based off of King Arthur. It's such an old legend now, that it's involved in a lot of popular storylines. I read "The Once and Future King" last summer which is a classic that Breaking Dawn could be based off of. The only thing is that I think OaFK might have been published in the 20's or the 30's

What's wrong with being published in the 20s or 30s?




I'm still sticking to Jane Eyre. Maybe.

I'm having a hard time seeing Jane Eyre though--I can't see how it would relate. But then again, I'm finding it hard to relate anything, so...

^^Just giving a summary of Jane Eyre it's hard to see the connections. In first two pages of this thread there is a discussion on how it relates. Basically, Jane and Mr. Rochester have elements of Bella and Edward in them (or vice versa) and their relationships are very similar. Also, Mr. Rochester had a secret he kept from Jane until the day of their wedding--he had an still-living wife. Edward isn't married, but I think Tanya may fill some sort of vague similarity to his first wife (who was insane-haha). Or there could just be a big secret that Edward has been keeping from Bella and has to tell her before the marriage. Also, Mr. Rochester's first name is Edward. You may argue, "Yeah, but Edward was a common name in 19th centurty England." However on SM's website in the Story Behind Twilight she says that Mr. Rochester and Mr. Ferrars led her to name her hero Edward. So already Edward has a connection to Mr. Rochester, whether the other book is Jane Eyre or not.
